What To Eat for 6 Pack Abs!Monday, January 27, 2014
I can't stress enough the importance of nutrition as part of your healthy lifestyle. You can work out as much as you want but if you follow it up with a cheese burger everyday you aren't going to get that six pack(duh). If your goal is to lose body fat and get lean enough to see all those muscles you are building you must eat right. But what is eating "right"? There are SO many books, websites, shows and articles about diet and nutrition, it's no wonder most people throw up their hands and give up or choose an unsafe crash diet. I wanted to share with you what I eat on a day to day basis to give you some sort of starting point. Your nutrition plan will likely differ but at the very least you can see what types of food can help you get lean. Please note that I am not a nutritionist(yet) but it's what has worked for me after much research. Goals for my daily nutrition are to stay as lean as possible while providing my body with enough calories to support heavy workouts and sustain muscle.

I eat a low carb diet(again not for everyone) but it works for me. I "cycle up" or switch to a carb heavy day about every 5 days(I've included a meal plan for this day too). I believe this keeps my metabolism burning hot and torching that fat! Everyone's bodies are different and it may take some experimentation to find the best nutrition plan for you. Bottom line is this-eat as clean as possible. This means eating minimally processed foods, straight from the source. Fresh meat, vegetables and fruit. If you do buy something in a box read the ingredients label. Do you know what everything is? If not, chances are you can make a better choice.
